Default 19May2018 Race Report

Another fantastic outing for the Seattle RC Racers at Cottonwood International Raceway. We call it that this time of year for the gentle, daylong fall of cottonwood onto the track, in the grass, in our belts, clumped on our shocks and every place even slightly sticky. It does nothing to diminish the enthusiasm, and the traction was excellent. It's just one of the dynamics of real outdoor racing in a park. Rain delayed the start an hour, but our 40 entries nevertheless held to our three quals and a main schedule. Credit must go to Jerry Boyle for his constant work in the early going to clear the track of water, so when the sun came out, we were ready to rip in short order. And also a shout to Jake who takes the lead on our track prep race in and race out. He's found a good formula for spray, which shows in consistent, daylong traction.

We had an excellent showing of mainland Canadians, the familiar crew from Richmond, and also Jason from clear over in Kamloops. It's just the best thing to see those guys, as we have for years and years, and the return trip must be made. If not before, the RRR Summer Challenge the first weekend of August should be on your calendars if you can make it.

I want to wish good luck to our racers headed to Reedy next weekend. It will be the final Reedy race at the soon to be torn up Tamiya raceway in Aliso Viejo. All good things eventually must end, but so many good races have been battled out at that track. It will be missed. Still, West Coast racing is strong, and those racers will surely redirect their energy to a worthy venue.

Results attached.
